I was honored to cut off his head

Discuss the roleplay based on the Last Samurai: http://www.eslgo.com/resources/intercul ... amurai.php

I'll start with the steps I give learners to handle cultural misunderstandings:

1. Each person explains what they find unusual (what's bothering them)
2. Each person checks comprehension
3. Each person suggests at least two solutions
4. The people negotiate to reach some sort of compromise

Learners who don't know how to get started can follow these steps to complete the roleplay task.
